A 2-kilometer coastal lounge bridge in Shenzhen’s Bao’an District named the Baywalk fully opened to the public Wednesday after the official operation of its underground space, according to Shenzhen Special Zone Daily.

The Baywalk, located in Bao’an District’s central area, opened its aerial and ground spaces Jan. 28. It is the country’s first urban green corridor with aerial, ground and underground spaces that connects Bao’an Library in the east and OH Bay in the south.

The Baywalk spans 14 green belts of Bao’an’s core business areas and five key cultural facilities such as Bao’an Library, Bao’an Stadium and Bao’an Youth and Children’s Palace, as well as six major roads. It is connected to Metro Line 11 and the planned Line 28.

The underground space took into account the functions of ecology, landscaping, service, art and transportation to offer a continuous, three-dimensional, diversified and unique space experience.

Walking around the underground space, citizens can feel different spatial interactions and experience the future development of science and technology, the report said.
